  • Fort Bellegarde is a fascinating place with a history going back from the Romans (at the border post just behind the fortress) to the Second World War. There are often good exhibitions or concerts in ...  more »
  • Beautiful castle with a remarkable panorama of the France and the Spain. We visited the fort with the documents provided at the entrance. The course highlights the changes made by Vauban. The temporary exhibition (paintings) not caught our attention. This Citadel should be better highlighted, for example the half-moons of Vauban. Following the moat, you can access a fortin below. For the view and the historical heritage.

  • This strong, realized under Vauban, is exceptional. By its geographical location, its size, but also by its history loaded (it was a real "lock" between the France and the Spain...) The entrance is 4euros for an adult, payable in cash (not the CB, or holiday vouchers). Staff very welcoming and professional. Very few people then that we were in the high season. The tour is in the form of course. We discover notably the impressive great cistern, a jail, the apartments of the Governor, a chapel... and a great view of the France, Spain (la Jonquera), part of the Albères, and on the col de panissards. Besides, I strongly advise to go down to this neck (20 minutes) to visit the remains of the temple of Pompey & of the via domitia. We very enjoyed this visit, even if there's actually a few pieces "historical" (guns for example... who are not lacking in the regions!). A site not to be missed for those who visit the area, and essential for those who love history!
